Healthy quinoa lentil salad served with an aromatic dressing. I love the diversity of quinoa. It can be served as a main ingredient for a salad or it can be added to salads in smaller amounts as garnish.
25 minutes | serves 4
2 cups quinoa
1 cup lentils

2 ripe avocados, sliced
12 cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters

Boil water with the stock cube, add the quinoa and lentils and cook for 15-20 minutes.
In a separate pot, boil the eggs.
Boil water with salt in a pot. Cut broccoli into florets, add to the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.
Mix the oil with the lime juice, garlic and fennel seeds, season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, combine the quinoa and lentils with the dressing, broccoli and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with coriander. Arrange on plates and serve with eggs and avocado.
